Seawater

Being able to desalinate seawater ensures that drinking water is still available even in times of drought.  We operate seawater desalination plants at Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island and the Adelaide Desalination Plant (ADP) located at Port Stanvac.  


In 2105-16, desalinated seawater accounted for 3.4% of South Australia’s total water supply.  More information on desalination can be found here.
